RE­MEM­BER the Holden Sand­man?

It's been 40 years since the orig­i­nal in 1974. Now it's back, with a mod­ern twist and nose for per­for­mance.

The 2015 Sand­man Spe­cial Edi­tion is de­rived from the VF Com­modore SV6 and the sporty SS-V, and is avail­able as a ute and /or Sport­wagon.

While the Sand­man is much more ad­vanced than its pre- de­ces­sor, Holden says it still re­tains the recog­nis­able surf liv­ery and the groovy, or­ange shag­pile floor rug as an ad­di­tional ac­ces­sory.

"Holden knows Aus­tralians bet­ter than any other com­pany and the Sand­man is a per­fect re­flec­tion of the Aussie cul­ture and at­ti­tude," spokesman Sean Pop­pitt said.

"I'm sure it will spark great mem­o­ries and help cre­ate new mem­o­ries for oth­ers. “Let the good times roll again." The Sand­man was orig­i­nally launched on the HQ Holden in 1974 as a panel van and ute in a bid to in­crease Holden's pres­ence in the recre­ational mar­ket. Pro­duc­tion stopped in 1977. The new Sand­man goes on sale in June.
